CSI Worldwide has been serving Show Organizers, Experiential Marketers, and Exhibitors since 1972. Our General Contracting Division evolved from our deep roots as an I&D company. We’ve been leading with empathy well before it became a thing, and customers who had become accustomed to the World Class service on a booth level, wanted to experience that same thing when they grew to having their own events.
This is because we don’t just build booths, we build relationships.
These include relationships we have cultivated with a nationwide labor force whose solutions always put the customer focus first. CSI translated our World Class service from our I&D foundation into our GC Division by having management, supervisors, and a labor force with vested interest in our customers’ success. We understand clearly, if you win, we win; every customer is a partner; when we earn the business of an Organizer, access to the exhibitor is a privilege, not a right. Every exhibitor engagement is an opportunity to create solutions and make that customer feel like our only concern in the world is them.
